Register to start Bronze, Silver or Gold Awards

There is a link at the end of this form to order a place so you can start on the Bronze, Silver or Gold DofE Awards.

Please read the following advice to make sure you make the best choice of which level to order, as it is not possible to refund the charge for a place once it has been provided to you, and you have started using it.

You can continue progressing your Awards up to your 24th birthday.

Age requirements for each level of the Award

Start with the level which matches your age and year group at school, not always start with Bronze.

Bronze – if you are at least 14, or you are in a year group where pupils turn 14 during the school year(normally S3). If you are younger than this, you can’t start just yet!

Silver – if you are at least 15, or you are in a year group at school where pupils turn 15 during the school year (normally S4)

Gold – you can only start when you are 16

You can continue to complete your Awards up to your 24th birthday.

You are just about to start your first DofE Award

You simply need to order a place for the level of Award that matches your age – you are a direct entrant  – and for Silver and Gold the duration for the sections will be different to someone who gas completed Bronze or Silver and is progressing to the next level.

You have already started another level of the Award

You can order a place for the next level of the Award as soon as you meet the age requirements required and you have completed at least one section from Physical, Skill, Volunteering, or Expedition for your current Award.  This is usually a good idea to do this, as you can progress to the different sections of the new level as soon as you finish them at your current level.

Before you order a place make sure you have your 7 digit eDofE number ready.

If you started a level of the Award and are old enough to start one of the later sections but have lots still to complete on the first Award, it may be best to abandon the first level and order a place for the level that matches your age range and restart as a direct entrant to the new section. It’s best to discuss this with your leader to decide which option is best.
